Memristive behavior of the SnO2/TiO2 interface deposited by sol-gel
A novel and cheap Resistive Random Access Memory (RRAM) device is proposed within this work, based on the interface between antimony doped Tin Oxide (4%at Sb:SnO2) and Titanium Oxide (TiO2) thin films, entirely prepared through a low-temperature sol gel process. The device was fabricated on glass slides using evaporated aluminum electrodes. Typical bipolar memristive behavior under cyclic voltage sweeping and square wave voltages, with well-defined high and low resistance states (HRS and LRS), and set and reset voltages are shown in our samples. The switching mechanism, explained by charges trapping/de-trapping by defects in the SnO2/TiO2 interface, is mainly driven by the external electric field. The calculated on/off ratio was about 8 x 10(2) in best conditions with good reproducibility over repeated measurement cycles under cyclic voltammetry and about 10(2) under applied square wave voltage.
